Liposuction Surgery and How This Type Procedure is Performed



In today’s society, most people want to look super skinny much more than being fat; some of them focus too seriously on losing weight especially celebrities. But how do they manage to remain skinny? Of course, many of them remain strict with their diets, do a lot of exercises and go into various diet programs recommended by their dietician but they are dozens of them who have obtained their lovely firm calf legs, flat tummies, and Brazilian butts through cosmetic plastic surgery even if they are too hesitant to admit to it.

An estimated five hundred thousand liposuctions are performed in the United States every year and this figure continues to rise to make this the most wanted and popular type of cosmetic surgery. Looking at this number it t is evident to see that celebrities are not the only ones running into a plastic surgeon office to get the look they opt for through liposuction.

In this article, we will learn more about liposuction, how this type of procedure is performed.

A lot of people know that define liposuction is the act of removing excess fat from one area of the body such as from the abdomen, hips, thighs or buttocks to carefully moving it elsewhere in order to create a more rationalized body shape.

Let’s define fat and see how it gets formed in your body.

Fat is a living tissue made up of cells dedicated to storing unused calories. When you eat more calories than your body needs, whether it is from protein, carbohydrates, or fat itself, all the excess calories get stored as fat in fat cells that store energy depending on the person’s gender. On average women store 5 to 10% more fat than men even though men tend to consume more calories than women.  In men, the fat tends to gather around the chest, stomach, and buttock. In woe women, it normally congregates in the hips, waist, and buttocks.

So what gets cut or remove during liposuction?

During this procedure, the cosmetic surgeon makes a tiny opening and inserts the liposuction cannula into the inner fat lever. Working on the cannula layer is safer than working on the top layer simply because the risk of skin injuries is very minimal, after the inversion the surgeon will then pull the tube through the fat layer. As the cannula moves, it breaks up the fat cells and a syringe is used to pump out the fat.

The advantage of liposuction surgery is that fat cells get removed permanently and you get very minimal complications before and after the surgery.
